Short and to the point.

A distressed and injured bottlenose dolphin sought out some divers in Hawai'i for help.

As they discovered on the night of Jan. 11, the dolphin had a hook embedded in its mouth and fishing line wrapped around one of its pectoral fins, and it was wound so tightly that it had cut into the creature’s tissue.

Diver and photographer Martina Wing made sure her cameras were rolling when an associate took out a pocket knife and began trying to cut the line away. Amazingly, it did not resist and appeared to be communicating its need for assistance.

It took off for air and returns to show the divers the problem with the fishing line.

Video, with captions, hypnotic new age music,  and story, over the fold.8 minutes.
